|Day 1: Was supposed to be fully shaded and I gave up. Ha.|
Halfway through the month, and I have to be honest. I'm struggling. A bit.
To recap in case your new to the term, Inktober was an initiative started by artist Jake Parker. Find out more here! The goal is easy: for every day in the month of October, draw a picture. In ink. Hence Ink-tober. I like the idea of drawing in ink from the get-go because I'm generally the type of person who is hesitant with my pencil. I will trace and erase over and over again until I am happy with my lines. Meaning, I do not always produce a lot of drawings or each drawing takes a lot of time.
|Day 3: When you miss-read |
poison as "poisson"
There are definitely times where instead of adding more detail (or shading), I stop a drawing earlier than I would like because I'm worried I'll completely mess up (Day 1 was a prime example of this). I recognize that as I'm just doing this for fun anyway, I shouldn't worry about "messing up" and should embrace trying new skills and techniques, but it's still a mindset that I struggle with overcoming.
|Day 4: a Kodama in the sea|
|Day 10: Snoopy's Dog house is probably a TARDIS|
|Day 12: My favourite so far, although I probably could have added more shading...|
Still, I relish the challenge and I am not tapping out yet. Here's to experimenting, practicing new skills, and 16 more drawings to go...
|Day 14: recruiting Reepicheep for my next quest. A fierce Ally to have.|
|Day 15: also in need of the mysterious Mulan for my questing band.|
